Employer Description
 
ABOUT LANDMARK SCHOOL Landmark is a coeducational day and residential school for students in grades 2–12 diagnosed with dyslexia or another language-based learning disability (LBLD). These fall under the broader category of specific learning disabilities (SLD). Our unique, individualized approach empowers students to reach their academic and social potential. Each faculty member is highly trained and specializes in educating students with LBLD. PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS - Customized program for every student - Daily one-to-one tutorial - Small classes of 6–8 students - Each student is assigned a supportive and engaged Academic Advisor - Research-based methods and programs - Challenging college-preparatory curriculum - Robust athletics, extracurriculars, and after-school activities - Wide range of community service opportunities Landmark is located 30 miles north of Boston, Mass. Students come from around New England, the United States, and the world to learn innovative ways to understand and overcome their learning differences. Visionary Charles “Chad” Drake founded Landmark in 1971 to educate students whose reading, writing, spelling, and math skills did not match their superior thinking and problem-solving capacities. Since then, Landmark has been the leader in the field of language-based learning disabilities. Landmark is not appropriate for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger's Disorder and/or ASD), Non-Verbal Learning Disabilities, Pervasive Development Delay (PDD), or primary social-emotional disorder.

The Landmark approach is unique, established, proven, and effective. We are the largest school of our kind in the country. Faculty members work with students in small classes of 6 – 8, address their individualized needs through a daily one-to one tutorial, and support each other and the student body through regular and consistent communication, on-the-job training, and mentoring. Approximately 470 students attend Landmark each year and another 150 attend our summer programs. We are located on two campuses on the North Shore.
